AoM Cigar Captoes are in.
They're gorgeous. They're a really lovely mid-brown shade of Cigar. Not too dark, and no olive/poop undertones that I can detect. I apologize for the photo quality - I am not a great photographer and the light isn't great. They look darker in the photos than they are in real life.
As far as quality - it's overall excellent. No flaws I can discern except that the shell on the right boot's toe cap is rougher than the shell elsewhere. Hopefully with time/age/brushing/buffing, it'll smooth out a bit. No dry spots to be found, unlike a lot of my recent AE shells.
Thanks again for the PSA.
Wow. I'm going to catch alot of crap for this comment, but I may actually prefer a Barrie cap toe's aesthetics to Grant. I have a Barrie Color 8 Cap Toe Boot and a Grant Ravello Cap Toe Boot and other than the Grant last being better fitment and more comfortable by a long shot (and my favorite shade - Ravello), the Barrie IMO looks better in a Cap Toe design. These are phenomenal! Can't wait to start seeing some direct sunlight photos and first wears popping up!
